Medical Introduction


Luxilon Medical manufactures specialty yarns that meet requirements for multiple types of medical devices.

However note that Luxiilon Medical only produces a semi-finished product: the yarn. It does not produce a medical device.

We have ISO 14385 and can produce in a Class 8 clean room from Q2/2017.

The yarns suitable for medical use are divided in 5 categories depending on product type and application:

  1. Sterilux: monofilament yarns for surgical sutures
  2. Sterimed: monofilament yarns for textile based implants, like e.g. surgical mesh for hernia repair.
  3. Multimed: multifilament yarns for a wide range of textile based implants, like e.g. cardio-vascular prosthesis, braided sutures, etc.
  4. Biomed: a range of yarns made from biodegradable polymers like PLLA, PCL,,…
  5. Other:
  • ThermoformLXN: thermoformable yarn for orthesis in cooperation with Orfit Industries NV
  • Luxicool: cooling yarn for sport and medical applications (bandages, burns, ….)
  • Radio-opaque yarns: make your yarn visible under RX
